try taming in a cage.. so the bird gets use to your hand.. never
give up or the bird feels it has won the fight. Each tim eyou hand
is just sitting in the cage wait untill the bird settles down
untill you take your hand out and if the bird moves around some
more just wait again.. do this few times daily and soon the bird
should accpet your hand as a perch. Or you can do what I did. Have
the bird in the cage and keep your hand in there untill the bird
settles down and accepts your hand as a perch.. When the bird is
settled, slowly move your hand to the bird. If the bird flutters
wait untill it calms down and then attempt to do this again. This
will require a lot of patience because it takes time for th ebird
to trust you. Good luck. Oh and also if you just got this bird its
always good to give her/him a good week to get acclimated with
his/her new invironment. Hope this helps :)
